SCHOOL ACCOUNTSThe ethical way to save
Funding from the Scottish Government has enabled us to set up our Junior Savers Schemes in selected schools across East Renfrewshire
The project aims to encourage positive financial habits from a young age. As part of the project we have employed a Project Coordinator to act as a liaison for the schools. Pupils are encouraged to join up as members, and save as much and as often as they like.
Pupils are encouraged to join up as members and save as much and as often as they like. In previous years, we have offered our First Savers a two percent dividend.
